Interview: Phil Favro talks about CTRL’s initiatives on TAR and Information Governance

CTRL2CTRL is an industry forum dedicated to advancing the discussion on the use of technology and analytics in the practice of law. Its sponsors include Relativity and Recommind (now OpenText)

At Relativity Fest I interviewed Philip Favro of both eDiscovery provider Driven and of CTRL, and I asked him about the relationship between CTRL and kCura and about CTRL’s work.

Phil Favro said that kCura has invested resources and time into CTRL’s work on the extension, proliferation and use of advanced analytical technologies. That relationship has helped with the education of organisations and lawyers on the benefits of analytics and on how best to use analytical technology.

Phil Favro talks about the 2016 TAR Guidelines and the Information Governance Playbook which CTRL has published. The TAR Guidelines address complex issues such as whether you should disclose your use of TAR, the protocols made with opposing counsel, and subjects like the blending of search terms and TAR.

The IG Playbook is designed to help organisations better address cyber security risks, the Internet of things, external messaging applications and collaboration tools.

Another subject which Phil Favro covers is the Corporate Counsel Analytics Survey undertaken in conjunction with the Information Governance Initiative to chart the scope and the direction of information governance.
